One simple rule to get a 50s look
There is one important thing to remember to get the classic ‘wiggle’ effect with a skirt or a dress. As the authors Naomi Thompson, Belinda Hay and Katie Reynolds of Style Me Vintage: Step-by-Step Retro Look Book recommend ”…keep your hemlines just below the knee – never above.” This will also help to create a more authentic 50s look overall.
Remember of course you can be as authentic or playful as you want to be. As in life, once you know the rules you can break them!
